Siemens workshop in Haifa

It's the only workshop for Siemens trains in Israel.
In 2006 during Israel-Lebanon war, a missile hit the workshop directly (it was Push-Pull workshop in that time), killing 8 workers.
That's why Haifa Center station renamed to Haifa Center Eight.

Oh yes! I remember we rode on the trains from Tel Aviv to Haifa to see my friends. We were there before. We actually flew to Israel. I remember they have double decker. We enjoy it.

For now, no direct trains between the capital and Tel Aviv. Transfer is required at Bet Shemesh.

Siemens won a contract to supply ISR with 330 EMU cars, worth about 1 billion USD.

Progress Electrification Israel Railways

First electric locomotive TRAXX arrived on August 28 in Israel.


First electric locomotive on a non-electrified section near Haifa.

When will we see an electric locomotive running on an electrified section?


Some electrification portals under construction on the new line Tel Aviv-Jerusalem.

The electrical work along Highway 1 seems to be more advanced than the previously posted picture:

Visiting Israel in June 2018. Will the high speed connection between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem be opened by then?

Not clear. The current official opening date is March-April 2018, but it might be delayed.

The rails near Herzliya, Israel are being diverted slightly to the right as part of the Highway 531 / Ayalon extension project, mostly due to a protest by local residents. However, the upside to this is that there is more space to build now, and they can easily move from a 2-track to a 4-track configuration, plus some extra for shunting etc. Here is a drone video by Dudy Cohen of the diversion. Ayalon extension construction can also be seen on the left (the right side is the northbound extension, which has been completed).
